Amazon Web Services is the largest and most successful cloud service provider by a huge margin. Its lead over the competition can be seen in the most recent Gartner IaaS Magic Quadrant, where there is enormous white space between it and its nearest competitor in the leader quadrant — with only AWS and that competitor cited as leaders. Everyone else is relegated to other quadrants.
The implication of Gartner’s Magic Quadrant is clear: AWS will be important for every company and IT organization. Developing AWS skills is critical. However, AWS is designed and operates quite differently from every other cloud service provider’s offering.
Understanding how AWS works and how to gain the greatest advantage from it is crucial — and Cloud Connect’s AWS Boot Camp delivers a half-day firehose of information to help get you started on your AWS journey.
The workshop covers core AWS concepts, as well as details of the different AWS services, to prepare you for your initial work with it.
Key areas covered in the AWS Boot Camp include:
- AWS global architecture and data center locations
- AWS services
- In-depth discussion of AWS compute and storage services
- AWS application design principles to ensure robust and scalable apps
- AWS service pricing
- Managing AWS utilization and costs
Past Boot Camp attendees have given it high marks for clearly and simply describing AWS in a manner making it easy for anyone to understand. While technical concepts are presented, it is not necessary to have a deep technical background in order to attend the Boot Camp. No hands-on technical work is expected of students, although a demonstration of the service is included in the Boot Camp, in order to communicate its ease of use.
